613 Avenue Create #173-Anything Goes-Option Use Orange & Blue Plus Two

Welcome to another challenge at 613 Avenue Create!  This time our Anything Goes theme has the option to add Orange & Blue, plus two neutral colors. This was a real challenge for me, but I had fun with it. Our sponsor is AliciaBel. I used a darling image - Curious Fairy.

Everything is from my stash. I used a ton of Spectrum Noir markers for coloring. I cut the image with a scalloped circle die and added some star die cuts. I put a rhinestone at the center of the starburst on my DP. The sentiment is CTMH.

I will come back to enter some challenges as I'm posting this late Sunday night. I spent the day dancing!

My Confession

I have a confession to make. I am not a fan of  butterflies. One got in our house when I was a little girl, and it scared me silly. I have never really liked them since. I know most folks like butterflies, and crafters use them a lot. I only use them when making a card or project for someone I know who really likes butterflies. I made this card a few months ago for a friend that we call "Butterfly" because of her love for them. She had a death in the family so I made this card for her:

The die cut is from a Cricut cartridge, and while I believe it was a Close to My Heart Cricut cartridge, I don't remember which one. The sentiment is CTMH also. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. The cardstock and sequins are from my stash.

I'm entering the following challenges:  Simon Says Monday Challenge - Butterfly Beauty;  Stamping Royalty #326 - Butterflies; Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes.

I hope you like my butterfly card - my friend did. And please forgive me for not being a butterfly fan...

613 Avenue Create#171-Anything Goes-Option Masculine Card

I have another grandson card for this week's 613 Avenue Create Challenge: Anything Goes with the option to create a masculine card.  Our sponsor is Sami Stamps. My grandson will enter high school in the fall - I can hardly believe it. So I made this card to send to him when he begins 9th grade. The image is Back to School Apple:

I colored the fun image with my Spectrum Noir markers:  CT1, 3 & 4, EB2, PP2, 3 & 4, and BP2. The book background paper is retired from CTMH; I cut the image with a circle Nestie after coloring.  The sentiment comes from two CTMH retired stamp sets.  I added die cut stars after dusting the die cut with chalk. All papers are from my stash as is the baker's twine.

I am entering these challenges:  AAA Cards #62 - Anything Goes; Brown Sugar Challenge #193 - Anything Goes; and Crafting with Friends #18 - Anything Goes.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
